    Not related to the article but the release countdown is off by 6 hours

    • There are different time zones in the world you know. 😉

      • thetrooper1989

        Did you beat the game yet?

        • Not even close. 😛

          • BlackDevil06

            Nyxus, how long have you played and what’s your completion rate?

          • About 3 hours, 2%.

          • Danny Patten

            Thats my boy. Scout every building for dem goodies 🙂

          • Listening to all the cassette tapes. And… dying.

          • Dying is the most important part of the game!

          • Gatsu

            Sounds awesome ;), glad to know it’s pretty hard :D. Gonna be such a long game =)

          • Vonkronberg

            Dying in the game? Or literally dying from listening all cassette tapes?

          • Dying in the game.

        • 22hrs – 13%… But if it is like GZ (stealth, no kills, S-Rank etc…), it is going to take, I would say, at least 400 hrs for 100% completion.

    • Okay, 6 hours have been added to the timer.

      • Chico Ribeiro

        Why were they added? Just for us to suffer?

        • Daburcor

          You feel it too, don’t you?

          • FooXz

            Lol, i LMAO with the coments!

  • DAVID ACOSTA

    12 HOURS TILL releASE THATS LIKE EXACTLY 43,200 SECONDS!! !!!!!!! :O

  • Ralexion

    Oh ye, my save is uploaded and ready to roll.

  • Can’t wait.

  • ShugoTakahashi

    This update just hit the 360 version for me, so it’s likely out for every version now.

    • Nope, Xbox One is on the short bus, hasn’t gotten the update quite yet 🙁

  • Theo Heisenberg Constantine

    i wonder what will happen is i transfer my ps3 and ps4 gz file to tpp? lol but damn i need to rebuy gz on ps3…. well maybe i will just transfer the ps4 file.

    • You can transfer your PS3 data to PS4, if that’s what you mean.

      • Ralexion

        I think he means that he has GZ data of both PS3 and PS4 versions, and if there would be a conflict if he were to upload both for TPP use.

        • Ah yes. Well, the one with the highest percentage?

          • Ralexion

            No idea D=

      • Nekkedsnake

        that’s dope! I love that the game saves are cross platform (within ps3/ps4 respectively) which means i can just upload my save of GZ on my ps3 (69%) to my disc of TPP on my ps4. Tho, i really wouldn’t mind playing GZ again on my ps4 since I do own it on disc AND downloaded it free from PSN a few months back ;D

      • Theo Heisenberg Constantine

        no what i mean is what will happen if i transfer both of them will i get double of the people i fultoned?

  • Giant Boss

    why cant i pre load the game yet? i am in europe now btw.its 2:00 PM here

    • Kol Leqejza

      and even worse: i’ve pre-ordered it digitally and now it disapeared from my download list -.-

      • clintonmeade40

        Sure it didn’t finish downloading? If not go to your library, open it up for redownload (ps4)

        • Giant Boss

          i cant start it at all. i am on ps3 and i set the download to automatic start

  • Danny Patten

    For any germans:
    Um den heutigen Tag rumzubekommen könnt ihr Mad Max schon kaufen. Habe es grade bei meinem lokalen Gamestop gekauft. Sollte den Tag nieder machen.
    Bonus Info: Wenn ihr Mad MAx kauft könnt ihr innerhalb von 3 Tagen den vollen Preis zurückerstattet bekommen. Dies gilt nur für Gamestop.

  • Bożydar Mazur

    What about the PC version?

    • Chico Ribeiro

      Pc version always had this option.

      • Bożydar Mazur

        Ill check it after im back from work. If there is im officialy blind.

        • Chico Ribeiro

          It’s harder to see wearing an eyepatch.

  • Javier

    That is a problem for the people who sold the game. I have it. I cant sleep. 18 hours left for me. Tonight Im going to cry of joy. Like the first time I went to a chris cornell show. He has a song called Ground Zero. “we`ll end it all with war” https://youtu.be/lAqIaehIu-c

  • Vonkronberg

    It´s important to say that the POW and soldiers captured from GZ will be unlock at certain point in TPP.

    Some recruits names are hidden for spoilers reason.

    • HunterSpetsnaz

      Do the Eye and the Finger (For example) have to be extracted in Normal or Hard dificulty in order to get them in TPP?

      • Vonkronberg

        I believe that doesn’t matter in which dificulty they´re extracted.

      • OxygenThief

        Funny thing for me is I kidnapped everyone in every mission on both difficulties. Place looked like a ghost town.

        • TheGame1083

          so you only have to extract the special characters and the yellow prisoners in all missions

        • Nekkedsnake

          I did the same thing!

        • Arthur Johnson

          But did you chopper the Fox Die corpses?

          • OxygenThief

            Of course, If it’s not bolted down, it’s leaving.

      • I thought you had to kill them though? or do you just tranq. and extract? kindof odd if you do…

    • MarcoRM82

      I knew that a i saw the eye and the finger con one trailer

      • TheGame1083

        which one lol

        • MarcoRM82

          Nuclear song INE, when snake is with the ashes.

        • MarcoRM82

          there they are

    • Donut

      What about the normal soldiers from GZ, do extracting those have them join you in the next game too?

      • Arthur Johnson

        Lol I doubt it, I choppered ever single guy out on GZ hard mode tho.. I even choppered the Fox Die corpses from DEJA Vu lol….

        … I got problems, I know

        • Donut

          LOL, that would be funny if some does happen if you extract the FoxDie bodies, like a virus spreads through your base or something.

          I do hope some of the troops get added to your base though, we’ll find out soon enough though

        • Nekkedsnake

          I did the same thing. I was messing around thinking what would happen if I tried to put a dead body in the chopper, thinking I’d get like an error sound, but Pequod took the bodies! Hilarious XD

    • Enzo De Biaggio

      Bro i just finished angel with broken wings i guess in tpp and now i can’t find any new missions do you have any idea why ?

      • Dylan Mailey

        Im at same point but was never concerned. Certain side ops unlock missions, they are marked as important. You should have the same side op I have highlighted yellow and im sure it leads to the next set of missions.

  • Reminder the game is available for PC/Steam 8:00 AM today

    • Patrick Gebhardt

      which timezone?

      • Shalashaska

        Definitely not eastern. No option to download for me. 10:25 am here right now.

  • need to get home uplode my save file and sleep till 10:40 eat and go get TTP in gamestop at 12:00 who is going to get it at midnight to?

    • Daburcor

      My Gamestop didn’t get enough pre orders for a midnight, so I am cancelling and getting it digitally. :/

  • Bigbossjack

    This is how the recruits works. Gotta complete missions in TPP to unlock them from GZ. 19 in total

    • clintonmeade40

      So it doesn’t matter if you have 100% completion or how much you put into the game as long as you have a gz save?

      • Why did I do all those things then D: I demand praise from the game for my dedication!

      • Tong Ninja

        Yeah from the looks of it you only need the save file … I guess the 100% completion gives you bragging rights. XD

    • Tong Ninja

      Thanks! 😀

    • TheGame1083

      where is this info from? it looks like it’s from a book?

      • Bigbossjack

        Its from the guide from what I know

        • TheGame1083

          I’ll be receiving my guide tomorrow in the mail, I’ll will confirm this when I look through it

          • TheGame1083

            I can confirm that this info is from the Complete Strategy Guide from Piggyback Games CHEERS!

    • asdasdfd

      Complete mission 12. In TPP right?

      • Bigbossjack

        Yes sir

    • TheGame1083

      is this seperate from the Konami Core voucher in the disc version of GZ?

      • Bigbossjack

        From what I know , yes

    • Arthur Johnson

      meh, scrubs all of them

  • Haan

    And it is officially September 1st here in New Zealand! Happy Phantom Pain Release day folks! Game is installing now, and now it’s time for me to disappear. Goodbye world, enjoy the game!

    • Not availabile in Poland yet 🙁

    • Gatsu

      Good luck bro and enjoy =) !

  • i wonder what were gana get ? i think its gana be a skin for BB and a weapon or two what do you guys think?

    • Tong Ninja

      19 recruits from GZ, GZ Sneaking suit, possible Grey Fox/ MGS1 Solid Snake skin for Big Boss and the opportunity to return to Camp Omega (GZ Map) to do special mission/s. This was confirmed by Kojima a while back I think.
      🙂

      • thats all badass thanks now the hype is bigger then ever

  • Robin Besch

    honest question here: how can uploading your savegame need a 400mb update?

    • clintonmeade40

      Changing the menu interface and adding the programming to upload the save data file would take that much space

  • No Place For Hayter

    Manually? weird, but at least I know it is done.

  • vic boss

    My collectors from gamestop has shipped. I’m fucking happy right now. I just wonder when will arrive.

    • John

      I got the email this morning too. Really excited. My receipt says arrival date Sept 2-3, and that was paying the extra $12 for express shipping.

      • Mauricio Acosta

        The thing is, I got value (free) shipping and it says (arriving on September 2nd!!!)

        • John

          That’s cool man. Wish I would have known about that. The rep never mentioned anything.

          • Mauricio Acosta

            Did you check the tracking for it? Honestly if paying 12 dollars means getting it 2-3 days earlier than value, then for The Phantom Pain it is totally worth it!!

      • vic boss

        Oh fuck that and did you set it to ship to your house or the store? Cause if you put it to the store , fuck that , it’s too much time. I didn’t pay the 12 bucks, but I think it’s gonna arrive by Wednesday or Thursday.

        • John

          Shipping to my office. I was tempted not to pay the $12 but was told it could take a week to receive it. I decided not to take a chance.

          • vic boss

            That sucks bro, I didn’t pay anything, and Its arriving the 2nd, where do you live btw? But I did set the shipping to the store as I thought that would be faster and it was.

          • John

            Yeah. I feel ripped off. I’m in L.A. They told me I could have it shipped to the store. I hate GameStop but it was my only option for the CE.

  • ominonarepus

    I read some people guessing whats gonna be the “gift” by uploading the GZ data.

    I don’t know yours but on my sheet code (spanish version) says: “Code for “officers for Mother Base” limited edition.

  • Solidus

    Still not out on Xbox one. Wouldn’t surprise me if they just forgot.

    • Solidus

      UPDATE to get the update on Xbox One, uninstall the game and reinstall it, an update will be available.

  • 0L3a gH0sT

    Does anybody know if it matters that I played GZ on ps3 but know playing tpp on ps4?

    • OxygenThief

      They said all platforms will crossover to next gen, PS3 to PS3 and PS4, XB360 to XB360 and XB1, PC to PC.

      • 0L3a gH0sT

        Thank you. Not that it really mattered. I’m not spending money again to get GZ for ps4. But just would be nice to get the benefit of getting GZ on release day.

        • OxygenThief

          You can, all Playstation info carries over and all Xbox info carries over to the newer platform.

  • John Villar

    What’s TPP?

  • David Magalhães

    Anyone wants to team up on PS3? We could support each other’s mother base.

  • what about the xbox versions, we get this update too right?

  • Arthur Johnson

    Last night when I finally could log in a finished one of the main mission, it showed all my GZ unlocks, I left on the screen for a bit and came back and said I was no longer connected to servers. And none of the characters are in my MB.. Anyone know what the problem is? doesnt look like I have any unlocks at all from GZ and S ranked everything on hard twice and 100% Gettin kinda miffed here, that was a chore and air lifting everyone better not be time wasted because of some stupid server glitch

    • Arthur Johnson

      Well it added a few after mission 6 but the first bunch of guys it showed unlocked still arent in my MB and one of those guys was actually important

  • Whoknows

    I startede play the pp without giving this a thought. Can I still transfer my data from gz to my pp game, or will I require that I start a new pp game?

  • rrj411

    I can’t upload data from ground zero…its saying I’m offline and need to go to ACC to get online. how the heck I do that? Need help please

  • Dylan Mailey

    What I need to know is when the xb one GZ save data transfer will work 🙁 I wanna stop having to check, and leave phantom pain in my disc tray forever 🙂

  • Jae Flores

    Does this work for 360 yet?

  • Charlie Gale

    Metalgearsolid v ground won’t update for me and I had the game since it came out.

  • ADAMJENSEN13

    Im playing on Xbox360 and I dont have that option save data upload. I didnt have that update for GZ. What to do? I cant download GZ save data for Phantom Pain.

      • ADAMJENSEN13

        Thanks for answer. Yeah. Its like problem with Deja vu mission on X360. There isnt update for GZ. For DejaVu and that save data upload. Maybe because I have digital version? Who knows.
        Maybe Konami will fix it someday.

    • Brian

      Did you ever find a solution. I’m having the same problem. I got Ground Zeroes just so I can have that sneaking suit while playing TPP but like you there is no option to upload GZ save and no update. Driving me crazy.

      • ADAMJENSEN13

        Nah. Never. I deleted the game once and redownloaded it but that didnt help. Maybe because I have digital version? You play on Xbox360 too? And You have digital version?
        Maybe there is problem with digital version?
        Konami probably will never do something about this.

  • Juan Diaz

    I downloaded GZ on my 360 because it was one of the Free with Gold games, and I don’t have the option to upload my save data. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

  • Erik Womble

    why is the “save data upload ” not on xbox 360?

  • Does one needs to have a PSN+ subscription in order to upload the saved data from this game on PS3?
